The Academic Fellowship is a mentored, post-graduate training program that prepares fellows for a career in pharmacy education delivery and the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL). This is a two-year experience located on both the WSU Health Sciences campus in Spokane and the Yakima Extension campus located at Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences. One fellow per site will be recruited each year, which allows the senior fellow to assist with mentoring junior fellows. Each fellow will be assigned a primary mentor and will be involved in the selection of their mentoring team. Working with the team, fellows will establish an individualized plan that aligns with their career, teaching, and research goals. At the completion of this fellowship, the participant will be well-positioned to assume the role of a clinical-track faculty member in a Doctor of Pharmacy program.
Each fellow will be involved in three main activities:
Teaching: Each fellow will deliver selected coursework (required, elective, and or laboratory-based) in the College’s Doctor of Pharmacy curriculum.
Developing assessments – formative and summative
Developing and facilitating labs, lessons, and in-class activities
Facilitating and evaluating patient care simulations
Assist with precepting in IPPE, APPE, and co-curricular activities
Scholarship: Each fellow will pursue an independent project related to the scholarship of teaching and learning and represent the College at selected professional meetings. Fellows are expected to present their project as a poster, and or oral presentation and submit a manuscript to a peer-reviewed journal before the end of the fellowship. Submission of grant proposals will also be encouraged.
Professional Development: Each fellow will engage in mentoring activities (education-based journal clubs, attend department meetings, and regular fellows meetings) outside of the instructional setting.
Stipend and benefits:
Fellows receive a competitive stipend and benefits package.
